|Last year, with the latest freeze on record, it (along with many others) was subpar. However, it has multiplied well and has been well budded. Good flower substance.

|I've had my plant for a few seasons and it has struggled for me a touch. Bloomed the year I planted them, but they did not do well at all the next season. Their fans (I have 6 fans of this) were very small and put on very little growth and they faded back very early. Has not bloomed in the last two years either but the fans have gotten much bigger and stronger. I think, providing there are no other issues, I'll see blooms on it again this coming season.|
